    This colorful graphic shows the different flavor offerings with surrounding copy that gives all of the benefits which are the nutritional benefits.

    I'm not sure if eating cereal is ACTUALLY that healthy or not, but this ad shows how Magic Spoon cereal is at least better than the competition.



    Here's a list of questions you can ask yourself to "grow" more.
    For example:

    This guy Hidreley Diao uses AI and computers to render what historical figures look like.
    These results are amazing!!

    George Washington:

    Apu from The Simpsons:


    Ben Franklin:

    Moe from The Simpsons:

    Napoleon Bonaparte:

    Leonardo DaVinci:

    Arial from The Little Mermaid:

    This is so interesting because we always see historical figures in these outlandish clothes and poses, and we forget they were just normal people most of the time.
    Napoleon is always depicted like this:

    When in reality most of the time he probably looked like this:
    You can see more examples of these faces here and here.


    So all last week I was at a birthday party trip for my friend ’s birthday! We were in the Florida Keys (specifically Islamorada) with trips to Key West.

    Here's some fun pics:

    flordia-outdoor-gym-scaled.jpgWorked out here everyday

    So long Florida, it was a fun trip!



    Now this is a total "1st World Problem".... but right after this week long birthday in Florida, I had ANOTHER friend doing a week long birthday ski trip in Utah (which I am currently writing this from) 😂

    Park City, UtahThis is Park City, Utah

    utah-skiing-scaled.jpgWe went skiing

    utah-skiing-2-scaled.jpgThis picture was very difficult to get

    utah-skiing-group-scaled.jpg4 of us went out one day, everyone else at the house wussed out!

    This is a concept I always love explaining to people:
    The "90-9-1 Rule" is a rule about most public online groups that states:

    90% of people just lurk:

    90 percent lurk

    9% of people casually participate:

    9 percent participate

    1% of people create most of the content:

    1 percent create
    This applies to most “groups” such as friend groups, political parties, social networks, and countries.
    This means you can have an outsized impact by creating content.
    If you have 1,000 friends on Facebook, and we apply this 90-9-1 Rule to it, here’s how it breaks down:
    If you have 1,000 Facebook friends:
    1% of 1,000 = 10 friends that post allllll the time.
    9% of 1,000 = 90 friends that post from time-to-time.
    90% of 1,000 = 900 friends that never really post.
    I bet you notice this on social networks you’re part of. There’s maybe 5 to 30 people you see pop up every time, simply because they create the most content!
    90 9 1 community chart
    This is why you can massively amplify your voice by being the 1% that creates content others consume.
    It's not for everybody, but it's a cool fact!
    Hope you enjoyed these little tidbits, have a happy Friday!
